What is Orthopedic Surgery?
Orthopedics is a medical branch focused on caring for the musculoskeletal system, including the muscles, bones, joints, tendons, and ligaments.
Therefore, orthopedic surgery is the specialty dealing with acute injuries, congenital disorders, chronic arthritic or overused skeletal, joints, and related connective and soft tissue conditions.
Alpha Surgical Center orthopedic surgery experts use the most advanced techniques and technology to improve care for patients with musculoskeletal problems.
Types of Treatments
At Alpha Surgical Center, we specialize in a number of orthopedic surgery procedures, including:
An arthroscopic procedure is a widely used form of joint surgery, especially on the shoulders, knees, elbows, ankles, hips, and wrists.
Because the equipment used during the arthroscopic surgery is small, the procedure offers excellent benefits, including:
- Reduced pain after the operation
- Faster recovery time
- Lower risk of infection
- You don’t require hospitalization
While some fractures can quickly heal with the use of a cast, others may require surgical intervention to repair the damage.
Bone fracture repair surgery involves using metal pins, rods, screws, or plates to hold the injured bone in place while it heals.
Our team of orthopedic surgeons is highly experienced in a range of fracture repair techniques, including closed, open, and external fixation.
When tendons or ligament damage occurs, mobility is compromised, and the injured area can be sore, painful, or weak.
Depending on the damage sustained, tendon repair surgery may be necessary to help restore joint mobility and reduce pain.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common ailment caused by some activities or repetitive motions that create pressure on the wrist’s median nerve.
Endoscopic carpal tunnel release is a surgical technique where doctors release the band of tissue surrounding the wrist to release pressure on the median nerve by using an endoscope.
Endoscopic carpal tunnel release provides faster healing times, reduced risk of infection, and minimal scarring.
